    Hello,

    I'm in the market for a new leather jacket. I was hoping you could recommend some brands that sell in Europe, since ordering outside EU costs me duty tax. I like the racer jacket style in brown color. I was looking at this one http://brandslock.com/leather-jackets-for-men/44-men-s-brown-leather-jacket-asasin.html but after reading that you can't get a quality jacket below 450€ I'm worried that I will get cheap piece of clothing.

    Regards

    Assuming that the models have average length arms, it could be possible that the sleeves on that brand run long based upon the pictures I am seeing. The models also appear to pose in ways to try to hide the excess sleeve length. It might be something to consider if you have average or shorter arms and I'd make sure that they have a good return policy even on 'sale' items.

    Reading some of the copy on the website the OP posted would make me nervous of buying from there!
